Favorite Quote:
“Libraries were full of ideas–perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”

“No. I can survive well enough on my own— if given the proper reading material.”
― Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass


Wrangling my inner thoughts is like
Trying to find a lightswitch in the dark
But there’s a wild animal in the room.
I know it’s possible
The way just isn’t clear.
And there’s a wild animal in the room.
I’ve been in that room for a decade
Dodging that animal
My hands roaming the walls
I never found the light
But I did find a window.
Sunlight soothes my aching brain
The heat slows my frantic animalistic anxiety.
But the days grow short
The nights are cold,
And I still haven’t turned on the lights.


The author's comments:

On the toughest days of my depression, I feel like I'm stuck in a room and the days turn and nothing changes.
